Know why you should pick up this book(besides the interesting plot, the humor and the good writing)? You should pick it up for the zombie sex. Yes, I said sex. S-E-X. With zombies. Zombies who are missing limbs. Zombies who might loose a finger during fornication. Zombies on....Viagra! Come on now. Comedy gold! You know you want to read about it!
So it's not only the year of the zombie, it's the year of the zombie spoof. The Girl's Guide to Dating Zombies is both a great place to start for people who have never read a zombie book, and might also be good fun for veteran zombie fans.
It's the year 2020, and the zombie virus that hit exactly 20 years ago targeted, tragically, only humans carrying the Y chromosome. You guessed it. All men became zombies within three weeks of being infected. With disastrous results for women -- can you imagine?
Our heroine in the story, Hattie Cross, was only 6 years old when the plague hit. She's never had a boyfriend in her life. A resident of New York, she works as a journalist for the Daily Scoopage writing articles of questionable authenticity and maximum headline value. Hattie was a natural for writing The Girl's Guide to Dating Zombies. Promotional activities for her new book make her something of a celebrity, and catch the attention of the largest zombie pharmaceutical company in the world, Geiser & Meyser. They make huge profits producing drugs which make zombies smell nicer, help them avoid putrefaction, and improve the quality of their skin.Read more ›
The world is considerably different than our own, as a zombie plague hit most of the male population roughly twenty years ago, turning them into zombies. Luckily, the zombies weren't looking for human brains to eat this time, but were quite happy to chomp on Fluffy or Rocky, your cute and cuddly cat and dog. The descriptions of the most popular places to meet a zombie male were rather funny as dance clubs and bars were set up at slaughterhouses and similar venues as zombies would haunt these places looking for their next meals. The author writes about these places in a no-nonsense fashion, yet I couldn't help laughing at the irony and sarcasm inherent in her writing and in her words as the word byplay was rather funny. The scene where Hattie, the main character, takes her boyzomb out to dinner where he can eat a live cow was too funny as you have to be careful that he doesn't splash blood and guts all over your clothes and food. I couldn't help but laugh and note how people adapted to situations, yet at the same time, there was a message implicit in the descriptions as well.
Hattie was quite fun as a main character and I loved the impulsiveness in her nature.Read more ›
Luckily, the world also has Hattie Cross, journalist and author of Girls' Guide to Dating Zombies, a manual of sorts written to help women navigate the unchartered waters of dating zombies; and, yes, that includes undead sex.
While interviewing the CEO of a major drug company that produces ground-breaking zombeceuticals, Hattie's sharp journalistic instincts uncover shocking information that will not only make her career, but may even change the entire world--again.
Lynn Messina's writing style and story-telling prowess is incredibly enjoyable and entertaining. Perfectly applying her fantastic sense of humor and satirical style, Messina lends legitimacy to an otherwise outrageous concept, and renders it strangely plausible.
And, after the last page has been turned, you'll sit and ponder a moment before realizing that, despite their perceived short-comings and annoyances, you have a totally renewed and much deeper appreciation for men.
